Subject [jira] Updated: (CASSANDRA-1037) Improve load balancing to take into account load in terms of operations
Date Thu, 29 Apr 2010 20:42:54 GMT


Jeremy Hanna updated CASSANDRA-1037:

(was: This could also take into account any number of variables - like memory usage.  The
number of operations performed just seemed to be the most logical to start with.  Another
metric suggested by Eric was memory.  The decision about which node needs to be balanced (1)
as well as how to balance (2) could be an aggregate of a few metrics - space, ops, and memory,
for example.)

>            Reporter: Jeremy Hanna
>            Priority: Minor
> Currently in cassandra, the load balancing takes into account disk space.  When using
an order-preserving partitioner, there can be hot spots in the various ranges of tokens in
terms of operations.  We would like to propose improving the load balancing so that it takes
that the number of operations into account.
> There are two places where this can be handled:
> 1. when the cluster decides on which nodes need to be balanced out.
> 2. how to balance an individual node - where to split
> For number 1, the number of operations that a node performed could be factored in to
how important it is to balance that node.
> For number 2, we are already using a midpoint in the node when trying to load balance
with respect to space.  We would propose adding a weight to the midpoint to lean towards splitting
so that the operational load could be better handled, not just space.
